Great pizza in Cali

my wife and I visit this restaurant twice during our stay in Cali, the thin crust was excellent and then toppings were fresh and tasty. In particular we recommend the thin crust parmigiana pizza which features eggplant and excellent marinara sauce.

If you are a pizza lover you have to visit this place and order the Calzone or "Pantalon", you will not regret it. I've been coming to Cali for quite sometime know and this is always the first restaurant I visit.

Highly reccomend the pantalon (calzone) with cheese and mushrooms. It is quite big; my husband and I shared one. On the second floor, they have a play room for kids. The kids had a blast. The room temperature was a bit warm for my taste.

Visited Cali recently and went in 2 occasions to Pizzeria Salerno at the Jardin Plaza Mall. One for dinner and sat outside and once for lunch in the enclosed, air conditioned room in the second floor. Recommend the latter. Less noise and heat comfort level improved considerably. The restaurant is at one of the entries of the mall, by the... More

I have grown in Cali and this is an iconic restaurant because of its calzone or pizza pantalon. Unfortunately throughout the years it has become a bit pricey. Specially for other plates. The chicken used to be iconic but not anymore. It's small and pricey. All in all the calzone is a must and it is offered in a junior... More

Italian food is ok specially the calzone pizza. Great italian tomato sauce. They dont work hard on atmosphere and their value could be better. The roasted chicken is also good if you want something different with rosemary

I've been there over 100 times throughout my life and always have the same quality and taste of their products. My recommendations are, Pizza Calabrese, ravioli bolognese, roast chicken with rosemary and garlic and pizza "pantalon" ( Calzone) with napolitan sauce, tomato cream. Also have french fries with Napolitan sauce.

Salerno restaurant has three branches in Cali Colombia. My favourite is located al El Peñon Square. It's a antique big house adapted to restaurant. Despite Salerno is very well known by your Chicken, Pizza Pantalon (pocket pizza) is really amazing. If you like juices, I recomend naranjada natural (orange juice).
